A little piece of patisserie heaven, definitely makes the taste buds dance. Everything you could want and more!
Everything is incredible here. I could never tire of eating here. I go every week, buy all my bread there, have great coffee and pastries.Just wow!
My hubby and I were staying at the Best Western and decided we wanted something delicious and fresh baked for breakfast. We took a stroll and found this place. The smell was heavenly and there was so much to choose from. He chose something chocolately and filled with creme (great breakfast, right?). I chose an orange danish. It was absolutely... More
The name describes it as "something crunchy that crumbles in the mouth". It became a routine for us to visit this awesome bakery for its fresh breads and pastries for our breakfast during our stay in Quebec downtown. It was a short walk from our hotel and we were drawn by the sweet smells of their fresh products wafting through... More
Finally a proper croissant! I can't tell you how many places serve bad croissants. If you want to get the measure of a bakery just try a plain croissant. If they do it correctly, chances are their other items are good as well. We had a ham and cheese sandwich which was good as well.
Over proofed chocolate croissant, old roast beef, barely over one ounce, on a good ciabatta a bare 5 on a 10 scale. No supervision. Does not belong on any top list. Send a critic that understands baking.
This is a great place. Everything was fresh and tasty (bar the coffees which were typically French), relaxed atmosphere, and friendly service. We went back here a few times. Highly recommended.
I've never had parisian macarons. I bought the mixed box of 12 (with tax $17) - so delicious. Wow. Each one was perfection. Eat them out of the fridge. The place didn't lend itself for wanting to stay and eat them there. The room was quite warm. Service was friendly.
I say these are the best pastries in Quebec City, but it might really be a toss-up between Le Croquembouche and Paillard. Le Croquembouche definitely has a bigger selection of pastries and bread. Located in St. Roch, we stopped here on our way out of town to have breakfast, and stock up on artisanal breads (try the olive bread). They... More
This bakery and pastry shop is unique in the city. The minute you enter the premises you nose picks up the smell of churned butter that is used in most of the baking goods on display. The variety of European-like cookies and pastries offerings is just amazing. Everything tastes good. The problem is making up your mind on what is... More
